    As The Windows phone has finally died I have moved onto to Android and I really love it. I have tried to use an iPhone but hated the restrictions and things. so as its nearly Christmas what is your phone of choice if you could wish Santa to drop one in your stocking or have one over the other

    1. Android based
    2 IPhone based

    Am an iPhone user but always hear about peoples loathing of the 'restrictions.' Specifically what can you do on the Android phone that I cannot do on my iPhone that would make me shift?

    The main thing I like the android for is the fact that I have a multitude of TV apps that are freely there to view all manor of stuff, just like my TV box and I don't have to mess about with settings and things that would invalidate the warranty.

    I have a Nokia 8 with pure android on (no bloatware) its fast, very responsive and the battery lasts over 2 days. My Nokia Windows phone lasted about a day and half but things likes watsapp took 20/30 seconds to boot, but this Nokia 8 is instant

    I can't see myself using IOS after my ipad and ipod experiences, although it pains me that the DJI apps are far better on IOS.

    I currently have a Xiaomi 5S+ (current model is the 8), it is getting rather sluggish, but I don't really know why, none of the apps I use should tax it's hardware. I'll probably root it and try a custom rom before considering a new handset. Had this in a full flip case since I got it and its immaculate, with only one dunk in the bowl so cosmetically its not needing a refresh.

    Apple. Apart from their prices, always Apple for me.

    Might be restrictive but if you also subscribe to the rest of the Apple eco system then there’s not much to make me switch to Android.

    My short experience of windows Phones was also preferable to Android.

    Bought my missus a Xiaomi Mi2 Lite 4/64 and it’s a great phone. Would I swap for my iPhone? Nah.

    You seem to word it like that's a good thing, but surely having more flexibility and not being locked to one brand is better?

    Maybe. But I know that all my Apple stuff just does what it’s supposed to with minimal fuss.

    It just all seems more seemless than when you try and cross brands. As a basic and an example only, I have have a 10” windows/Android tablet, a set of Sony over ear cans. If I want to watch something on the tablet, with no logic or consistency I have to pair/unpair the headphones almost randomly. This doesn’t bother me, it’s just an example.

    I have AirPods and as soon as they are in my ear, my iPhone connects instantly. No where near the same sound. In ear vs NC over ear, but in terms of what I want to happen. It works.

    I cannot argue about their prices. That takes the piss for sure, but hardware/functionality... I’ve tried many other things, and there is a smoothness there for me.

    The issues you mention in my experience were upto Android 5ish. After that all seamless for me.

    I moved to Android a few years ago and would never go back, you have loads of choice of what phone you would like from the very cheap to the very expensive and you can do what ever you like on them (downloading any files from tinternet, copying files to them and then back to a PC).
    To me an Android phone is like having a PC in your pocket where as iPhones are restricted as to what you can do with them.

    I hate Apple devices with a passion, most people who do tech support agree that they have more issues with apple being compatible with MS systems than Windows Phones or Android. My kids and Mrs all use Apple (pads & phones), so I have a very good understanding of them (more than I'd like!), but Android all the way for me, you get way more bang for your buck!

    Having said that, Apple are great for kids as they are harder to "break" O/S-wise, and they do hold their money better than most Android phones. So if you like having the latest phone, Apple can be an expensive habit to start, but then selling your old phone should help the upgrade, a lot of it comes down to personal preference I suppose.

    I also hate iTunes (it runs like a dog on Windows PCs as it was made for Macs) I dislike the format of it too, it doesn't seem very "user-friendly" to me at all. All of my music is MP3s which I play through Plex, so there is absolutely no benefit for me to use crApple anything. The Apple Store is also very heavily restricted to registered developers only (and its a right bastard to get accepted to become one!), which again is great for safety reasons (as there is a lot of shite on Google play, some apps ask for questionable security permissions!) but not very good in the sense that the selection you get is much less. crApple rant over :-)
